For the latest news, reviews and interviews about Barbie Wilde and her dark crime novel, The Venus Complex, please go to: http://www.barbiewilde.com. Fangoria #321: Barbie Wilde "is one of the finest purveyors of erotically charged horror fiction around."The Venus Complex: "A novel by a female Cenobite that gives the world a smart, artistic, cynical, cultured serial killer who could give Hannibal Lecter a run for his money. On top of that, this is a poignant, funny, sexually-charged, hardcore critique of popular culture and a deconstruction of relationships, academia, and art." - Horror Talk "Top Books of the Year"Barbie Wilde is best known as the Female Cenobite in Clive Barker's classic cult horror movie Hellbound: Hellraiser II. She has performed in cabaret in Bangkok, Thailand, robotically danced in the Bollywood blockbuster, Janbazz, played a vicious mugger in the vigilante thriller Death Wish III, and was a drummer for an electronica band in the so-called "Holy Grail of unfinished and unreleased 80's horror" Grizzly II: The Concert. Wilde was a founder member of the mime/dance/music group, SHOCK, which supported such artists as Gary Numan, Ultravox, Depeche Mode and Adam & the Ants in the 1980s. In the 80s and 90s, Wilde also presented and wrote eight different music and film review TV programs in the UK. In 2009-2014, Wilde contributed nine short horror stories to the following anthologies and publications: "Sister Cilice" (for the Hellbound Hearts Anthology); "U for Uranophobia" (Phobophobia); "American Mutant: Hands of Dominion" (Mutation Nation), "Polyp" (The Mammoth Book of Body Horror -- reprinted in The Unspoken); "A is for Alpdrück" (Demonologia Biblica); "Z is for Zulu Zombies" (Bestiarum Vocabulum -- reprinted in Fangoria's Gorezone #29); "The Cilicium Pandoric" (the sequel to "Sister Cilice" - Gorezone #30); "Botophobia" (Phobophobias, to be published in October 2014) and "W is for Writer's Block" (Grimorium Verum, December 2014).
